Admit it. You know I’m not the only one who would love to see a sequel to the 1997 classic, The Player’s Club. Here’s a few reasons why Ice Cube should revisit the world of one of his most iconic films.
1. The film is an undeniable cult classic in the Black community. Outside of Coming to America, I cannot think of another film that is quoted more often in daily life than Player’s Club. The film was filled with infinite wisdom and one-liners. Who can forget lines like:
“Make the money, don’t let it make you!”
“They couldn’t pay me enough to smell mother-f##kers feet all day!”
“Some of us got to use what we got to get what we want.”
“All the ladies out the mother-fucking dressing room, please!”
“You call that dancing?”
“You lucky it’s not Black History Month!”
2. The film showcased some of the most talented Black actors in Hollywood and it would be great to see them back on screen together. Can you imagine seeing Jaime Foxx, Lisa Raye, Monica Calhoun, and Terrence Howard back on screen together? Jaime and Terrence have gone on to become Hollywood heavyweights and Lisa Raye stars on VH1. Monica Calhoun was recently in the sequel to The Best Man Holiday. I can only imagine the kind of chemistry that could be captured if they were on set together again. Continue reading
In my opinion, R&B divas has started a movement that has many great artist from the 90′s trying to make a comeback. I won’t say that R&B is in a state of emergency, because things can’t stay the same forever. However, I will say R&B is in a strange place right now. We all remember Kima, Keisha, and Pam. They were the trio that made up the Bad Boy girl group Total. Totals smooth vocals mixed with their street style made them a staple in 90′s hip hop & r&b. In a true Diddy fashion, the group just fell apart, disappeared, and the fans have the slightest idea as to why.
On Valentines Day, Kima & Pam performed together for the first time in years at a special R&B lovers concert in London. While there, the two dropped by several radio stations and gave their two cents on the current state of R&B, social media, prospects of a comeback, and the other standard issues that dinosaur artists speak on. Catch these T’s. Ohh but wait. Notice Keisha wasn’t there. No Gawd Hunty. See Miss Keisha was smart enough to marry well. Her female intuition must have told her that there would be no money after Total. Keisha went off and married actor Omar Epps, had a couple babies, and is sitting pretty. No tea no shade, but when I first read that only Pam & Kima were in concert, I immediately thought to myself “damn skippy, the two that NEED the money.” Chile Cheese. Anyway, catch these T’s Continue reading
Come through White Fish! Yes GAWD HUNTY! I was having a hard time finding the motivation to blog today until I stumbled across. First and foremost, there are very few Anita Baker remakes floating around out there. The fact that JoJo was daring enough to take one on says alot. Mama did the damn thang! Check it out… Continue reading
Kandi, Todd, and Mama Joyce guest starred on The View today. Much to my surprise, the hosts of The View took Mama Joyce to task about her constant meddling in Kandi’s business. Early on in the interview, Mama Joyce threw some major shade Todd’s way and one of the host found it prudent to correct her. As usual, Kandi stuck in the in the middle, was overtaken by emotion and began to cry. This is a really painful situation for Kandi and I pray that she is brought to peace with this whole situation soon. Check out the video Continue reading
Lawd Gawd bless the dead. First Tyrese, now Ludacris is in court saying he can’t pay his child support because Fast & The Furious 7 has been put on hold due to Pual Walkers death.
Ludacris was in court Wednesday with his baby mama, Tamika Fuller … who’s demanding Luda pay her $15K a month to take care of his 2-month-old baby daughter, Cai.
But Luda went to court and told the judge … he was counting on “Fast and Furious 7″ money to make his payments, and the movie is now on hold so his payday went away.
Luda claims he can only pay $1,800 a month — confessing he only made around $55K for 2013. ~ TMZ
Luda knows he needs to cut this sh!t out. I really don’t know what else to say…
So this viral video has surfaced of the police using force to subdue a woman that had been placed under arrest. Throughout the video, you can hear the woman yelling that she is pregnant. Tag lines along with the video say “police caused the woman to lose her baby.” I can’t confirm or deny that. Quiet as its kept, Mama doesn’t look pregnant, she just looks fat to me.
Nonetheless, when I first watched the video, I thought to myself, oh wow why are they using such excessive force with her? Then I had to pause and think for a moment, why is she resisting arrest? I’ve never gone to police academy, but I know they are trained in special tactics on how to take someone down who is resisting arrest. Taken out of context we have a video that looks like the police are beating up on a woman. Put in context, and taking into consideration other factors, I’m not sure police brutality is the conclusion that can be drawn. I’m kind of torn with this one. You take a look and tell me what you think. Continue reading
